3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I'm not sure this one lived up to its high rating, although it was a very tasty beer. Deep amber color with a malty start that was quickly overpowered by strong hop flavor.

Bottle: An amber pour with a nice head, lasted for a while on my 2nd bottle. i think I may have mispoured the first. Extremely hoppy... a savoured flavour. A top 3 APA Iíve had, if not THE best.

Is this an IPA masquerading as an APA? Who cares. Good brew and I donít have alot to add to whatís already been said. Hoppy for an APA, but not overly so. Lacing is somewhat limited, but the aroma of hops, grapefruit and other things citrus make this an enjoyable brew. This is the beer I want swill-lovers to sample. I tihnk this one will convert many a-heathen from the uninformed to the wonderful world of microbrews.
A home run from Three Floyds.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Orange color with an ever so slight haze and a fairly moderate off white head. Has a wonderfully refreshing scent of mixed citrus fruits including, grapefruit, oranges and tangerines. Strong bitter flavor up front from the agressive hopping that quickly disapates to a nice a dry crisp finish. A great pale ale; one of my favorites. Hops...itís all about the hops......

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark amber but you can see through the beer still (not cloudy). Aroma is heavy with tropical fruits of mango and pineapple--real nice. Taste has a real bite of hops to it. This is bitter--itís more of an ipa. Lasting and developing citrus bitter grapefruit finish that has an focus on the hops, finishes bitter with sweetness of tropical fruit syrup.. The first time I had this it gave me the offical íhopburpí which is enjoyable from this brew, and hence my user name. I likey

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark yellowish amber with a white puffy head. Aroma is light and citrus like with floral and grass notes. Taste is especially lively and complex. Very strong citrus flavor almost to the point of grapefruit but not quite. Finish is lengthy as its hop presence sticks to the palate. Very unique and complex!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer isnít classified as an India Pale Ale but probably should be. Very nice hop, citrus flavor. Very reasonably priced and is a mainstay in the fridge.**Just had to upgrade this beer as I was lucky enough to have in on draught. WOW! Had to buy a kegerator to enjoy at itís fullest. Best investment I ever made. This beer isnít quite a hoppy as Ruination, but for Midwest beers, it rocks!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured deep amber, quickly dissapating head, and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, hoppy, some bread, citrus, spice, and some sweet malt. The taste is an amazing balance of the aroma, hops, and smooth aftertaste that leaves your mouth tingling. A definite favorite with the right amount of sweet malt, hops, floural aroma, and piny aftertaste.
